A Desert Journey to the City of El Paso in Texas

Sitting on a balcony in the United States looking across Mexico, there were miles of dirt with no sign of greenery and massive mountains that gave unending sceneries with dust devils and uniquely carved-out rock with a peek of color from various cactus flowers.

The dry heat and long hours of the sun beating down and absorbing into the everlasting hues of the desert landscape can take some time to get used to. Every evening, the sunset's warm tones vibrate off the desert mountaintops and sandy landscape, amplifying the intensity of the red, orange, and yellow hues. The air begins to cool, and the weather goes from summer to fall within a few hours into the night. The skies are lit across El Paso into Mexico, with millions of lights that mimic the sky's stars.

I never thought I'd experience a journey in Texas, let alone a desert boarding another country, but here I find myself temporarily sucked in. I'm blessed to have these opportunities to travel and experience these places. Most importantly, I love meeting new people and learning about their lives.
